Thanks for all your kind words! Be sure to check out my other albums on the archive, and my group's work on tryad.org

Subject: Outstanding
This work is truly outstanding. I've been doing a lot of virtual crate digging on the archive recently and to find such a gem was worth the time. John's other albums are on an equal par with this one so I suggest taking some time to check those out too. There is so much substance in John's work that it's hard not to find at least some elements that will appeal to you. For me, I like it all.

Subject: Breathtaking
The closest comparison might be moby and paul oakenfold, but I think he blows them away (plus, one of the few truly open source artists around here [by-sa]) I am flabbergasted. Thanks John.

Subject: John your a Genius.
This by far the best completed work (IMO) in the open source archive. How this came below the radar of the curators is beyond me, shame on them.
